Lutheran Prison Ministry

LutheranPrisonMinistry-LogoHealing and Growth on the Inside

Most men and women arrive at a prison, jail, or detention center with few earthly possessions and few supporters. They have had a very traumatic experience and often begin thinking about what went wrong in their past life. It is at that time that an evangelistic prison ministry can reach them for our Lord Jesus Christ.  May these free downloads enable you to provide care and Christian witness to those who are incarcerated in your area.

In addition to providing these free downloadable resources, Lutheran Prison Ministry of YLM provides donated Bibles and other Christian literature to inmates served by prison ministries in the United States.  Also, during this time of heightened immigration-related detention in the United States, YLM is able to distribute Bibles to the large numbers of men and women in a immigration detention center in El Paso, TX.  Two cases of Spanish paperback Bibles are needed every week for distribution this distribution alone.  Would you sponsor a week of Bible distribution this year?
